CRAMER: Statement on Pulling of Health Care Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today after H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act of 2017, was pulled from consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives:
As disappointing as losing our chance to repeal and replace Obamacare is to Republicans, it is a missed opportunity to save the American people from the death spiral of this very flawed law. I hope my colleagues spend the weekend resting and preparing to come back to Washington Monday renewed for the next challenge. We must do better for our constituents than we did today. With a farm bill pending, infrastructure in need of upgrading, and a tax code that punishes American jobs and families in need of reform, we cannot wallow in misery. We must pull together and deliver results for our citizens. I appreciate the incredible work of Speaker Ryan and our entire House leadership team and the remarkable effort of President Trump and his team. Hopefully we've all learned some lessons from this experience and are ready to move forward.
